Spanish police find body of missing American student
Police in Madrid Tuesday found the body of an American student who had been missing for almost two weeks, after draining part of the city's river, a police source said.
The cause of death was not yet known but there were "no signs of violence" on the body of 22-year-old Austin Bice which was found in the Manzanares river, the source said.
Bice, a student at San Diego State University who was on an exchange programme in Madrid, was reported missing after heading home alone early on February 26 after a night out with friends, according to Spanish media.
Police had drained a section of the river in the west of the city near where Bice was last seen before finding his body there, the source said.
